Limited 5 piece Grey Version
PP01 Special Grey Version 5pcs limited
So this is probably based on Optimus from Return of Optimus Prime when he had the special metal alloy coating?
Is it supposed to be a proto/test shot-ish KO, or their take on 'sleep mode'? Can't see much demand!
They might as well, they paid to get the mold made.
You ain't kidding
Silver PP01(50pcs limited)
Golden PP01(50pcs limited)
easy pass , even easier than for most Igear products.
Was that first one supposed to be a kit that you paint your self or something?
Anyway, I kind of like the chromed one, but the gold is too much. Although, great if your a fan of the episode Golden Lagoon was it? Electrum anybody?
So how many versions of this mold are there now?
1st Walmart Masterpiece
2nd Walmart DVD version
5th Ultramagnus, white-Prime
6th Nemesis Prime
7th Unpainted version
8th Silver plated
9th Gold plated
Did I miss one?
Jesus. Who keeps buying this shit? I can guarantee you the demand for a lazy unpainted version of the mold isn't high in the slightest.
I agree, I'll just stick with the MP04. Best one there is bar-none.
Umm This is not the same mold, its a smaller scale.
I'm buying the painted ones. The gold/silver/"Lucky Draw" releases are an easy pass, even if the prices were quite a bit lower. I've got virtually no interest in official releases that take this approach with the decos.
It's funny that they are attempting to tune into the market that normally goes for that sort of thing, but haven't yet figured out how to do a Shattered Glass or Ultra Magnus colored version.
Honestly... this is ALMOST brilliant.
I mean, how many people out there beside me have that weird affinity for those unpainted grey prototype images that surface for new figures? I know there are a few. For some reason the flat grey just brings out all the detail in the mold, and often I'm almost disappointed to see a new mold in final colours after seeing a sweet looking grey proto.
Anyway, if I was gonna shell out the money for this, I'd get a colour version, but there were only very few of these made, and it's sold out now, so there must be a few grey proto fetishists out there...
bet they took the test shots they had and made sure they were complete, and decided to make a few bucks. Genius, actually.
Really? Looked the same to me. Oh well..........................
Wow. Sold out. I guess there were at least 5 people interested in this.
They modified the mold a little bit (shoulder joints, and added magnets to the waist area). I have a feeling these were test molds. I have no interest in them, but like Smog said, if you're into painting models then this could be cool for you.
IGear is still missing the trailer for their Leader products. It would be interesting if they make a trailer and if they do will they downscale the trailer they have planned for Masterpiece Convoy. They could make the variants, regular, black, and clear....
Yeah, I just missed out on one.
I was planning on getting one and bashing it up to look like dead Prime.
I'm convinced they have completely abandoned everything that was not yet produced prior to the mini-MP stuff taking off. The trailers that you mention are most likely never going to come out.
